The Charlottetown Pollution Control Plant is ready to accept sewage from Stratford.
Work has been ongoing for the past year to build a pipe that will see sludge pumped from the town over to the city’s plant on Riverside Drive.
During a recently monthly meeting of council, Richard MacEwen, the manager of the city’s water and sewer utility, said the plant is ready to accept the sludge and expects testing will commence by the end of October.
It would be shortly after that sludge would start moving in a pipe across the Hillsborough River.
As for the lagoon in Stratford, it is expected to remain available for about a month after that as a backup should any problems arise.
